A Winged Thing of the UK

Winged Things

Over at Mysterious Universe there’s a new post from me on what might be termed some sort of weird British Mothman.

It starts like this…

“The Mothman of Point Pleasant, West Virginia; Cornwall, England’s Owlman; the Houston Batman of Texas; the legendary Thunderbirds that populate Native American lore; and the flying woman of Vietnam: they all have one thing in common, namely that they are undeniably weird winged things that have no business surfing the skies of our planet. But, that doesn’t mean they’re not! Indeed, the sheer wealth of testimony on record suggests that’s exactly what they – and many more of their monstrous ilk – are doing.

“And while the critters cited above are all well known to the field of Forteana, many others are not, including one I investigated more than a decade or so ago in central England, and which is way up there in the truly weird stakes. So, where to begin? There’s only one place we can: the beginning of course…”

And here’s the full post…

    I saw that the year was 1937–why does it seem that the 1930’s had lots of cryptids on the loose…Nessie began then.

    I’d be curious (but don’t have the time right now) to cross reference all cryptid sightings around the globe and see if there’s any coincidence of sightings by time periods–see if there are years where cryptid sightings are more prevalent than others. Not sure what it might signify and there could be all kinds of variables at work, but it makes me wonder.
